Blogger sucks.

Back at work after a long weekend. Eli's wedding was nice; hung out with the husband of one of the bridesmaids while Beth did her matron of honor duties. Had the day off yesterday. Spent the morning hanging out with Lucas; he is a bundle of energy, a non-stop crawler and talker (now moving into the "yeller" phase, as he is learning that he can up the volume of his voice, which makes Mick the dog even more jumpy around him. Babies, apparently, are like American tourists abroad: they assume that if you don't understand the words that are coming out of their mouths, saying those words LOUDER will result in comprehension). Beth left work early and we went to UTC mall to do some much-needed shopping; for me, a new Ben Sherman shirt, black Rusty pants, and "ESPN NFL 2K5" for the Xbox. The weather is stunning, brilliantly sunny and warm (downside - my Mission Valley office, where I spend my Tuesdays and Thursdays, has a huge window that faces the sun, heating things up nicely. Note to self: short sleeves on those days, moving forward). By 9:00 last night I was done, too tired even to watch "24" (thank you, DVR). I'll classify that weekend as the Official End of The Holiday Season.

I'm feeling like a lethargic slug. Activity levels have dropped sharply over the past month (and damn you, creative team behind the new "Battlestar Galactica", for adding to my woes. For you have unleashed, behind "Lost", the best new show of the year, and I will be devoting space on tomorrow's entry to sing your praises and to convince those non-geeks that your show is definitely not geekfodder, but an intelligent, suspenseful, character-driven drama that deserves a wide audience. Jesus, I sound like Roger Ebert.) I'm going to hit the gym starting tomorrow.
